Or perhaps it is because someone has done his homework--i.e. research--and knows that continuing to pour money down the rabbit hole known as the sex offender registry does nothing to prevent sexual crime against children or adults. Since no more than 1% of sexual assault against children is committed by registered sex offenders, once one has done the research, this is the only logical conclusion to come to. If there is any money floating around--or any way to scrape some up--implement educational and awareness programs in the community and the schools about the cause of well over 90% of all sexual crime, especially that against children: the family members and acquaintances that the children know, trust, and love.

You notice how legislation, and political year are always mentioned??? The registry is a political ploy, a smoke screen, a scape goat tactic to keep those who are not fortunate enough to become informed in the pockets of those politicians. Families do not want to hear that 90+% of offenses are done by relatives and acquaintances. Then one would really have to take a look at some behaviors that they have been ignoring. Perhaps a child that is not getting along in school, or one that is really quiet, a child that distances themselves when a certain person is around? The signs go on, and on. Money better spent on education.
